Joe Paul.. a.k.a. Off Kilter

Wednesday’s post was all about the softer side of Jeeping but not necessarily cleaner or less timid, but none the less a female Jeeper. Well today’s post is about that Jeeper’s husband – Joe Paul. I wanted to take a look into the other half of the story..  So without further ado.. allow me to present Joe Paul, or as many know him by on FaceBook – Off Kilter

.

Joe Paul

“Well, let’s start here – my name is Joe Paul. I am 32 years old and married to Angela Paul. We have four kids between us both. I am one of the founding members of Off Kilter. I’m also a member of Exploring NH, and am great friends with Dizturbed Kreations, and MASS Krawlers.”

Joe Paul

“I drive a 97 XJ 2 door 5 spd, with rear lincoln locker 31 ltbs 3 inch lift from Rusty’s, snorkel, bored out throttle body. My favorite spots to wheel are Wiley’s RD in Royalston MA., Carnage Hill in Troy NH., and Powerline Hill in Winchester.”

We asked Joe what his favorite off roading quote was and Joe told us “Hammer Down” and shares a story about one of his Hammer Down experiences later in his interview.

When it comes to modifications on Joe’s Jeep, he told us he would like to have “long arm kit, on board air w/ air lockers, and a full roll cage.” We asked Joe what was the best modifications he has ever done on his Jeep and he told us “The best mod I did was my lift and snorkel. I went with a 3 inch lift (cause its my dd) with new leaf springs. New leafs make such a difference in ride stance and performance.”

When asked when Joe started getting into to off roading he responded with “Honestly, I wheeled a bit when I was younger, but never had a vehicle built for wheeling as I do now. I really enjoy going out and pushing my jeep, but there are the days that I love to sit and watch my wife wheel hers.”

I asked Joe if he had any funny stories or incidents from off roading he would like to share. Here is his: “I went out wheeling with a bunch of friends to a place called Clubhouse Pond. We were going out for the day, first hole we came across, I am told to hammer down into, so I lined it up, shifted from 2nd and into third as I entered the water..”

“and ka shloosh , water over the trees, and my jeep dead in the water!”

Joe Paul

“Pulled it out of the water to take out the plugs.”

Joe Paul

“One is wet, the other dry, tried to start it with no plugs, still bound up, so we pulled it out of the water, and ripped my bumper off.”

“Got underneath it and pulled the drain plug, 3 gallons of water and oil came out… so after the tow home and all the friends helping me pull my motor out…”

Joe Paul

“That same day, there’s a softball sized hole in my block! LOL!”

I asked Joe why he loves Jeep off roading so much and he told me “That’s easy – the fun, the friends, and strangers that you meet. Joining together to help each other, and going above and beyond what you would expect, the good times with my family, and all the beautiful places we can go where no one else can.”

Team Off Kilter Western Mass Jeep Group

Team Off Kilter Western Mass Jeep Group

A Western Mass Jeep Group “Team Off Kilter” is looking for some manpower to help with the Wiley’s Road Clean Up.

Joe Paul reports “As of right now, Wiley’s road clean up day is Sunday May 2nd, 10 AM.” They have a tire warehouse to take all the old tires, and Griff’s Rubbish to haul the trash, but could use some more man power and some jeeps to wheel with later. Any donations go towards paying to dispose of rubbish. The club and Joe would like to thank all of those who are already helping but would appreciate as much more help as they could get. Please pass this around even if you are not in this region and try to get them a great turn out!

The location is Wiley’s Road in Athol MA, is off of Chestnut Hill AVE. Any question can be sent to projectsnorkel@yahoo.com or http://projectsnorkel.webs.com/.
